MARC CHAGALL

PAINTING IN LIGHT...

Marc Chagall was a Hasidic Jew ("the Hasidim serves God with Joy"), raised in Vitebsk, Russia (now Belarus). From 1912 to 1985 he lived in France, except for a brief period between 1941 and 1948 in the USA.
Although most of his religious paintings were inspired by the Old Testament (Talmud) stories, Jesus Christ appears in many of his works, particularly in his stained glass which Chagall called 'painting in light'.

Watch a video including Chagall working on his stained glass. Especially see 6'30" in.
